Slow down and Move Over

March 4, 2016

The Move-over Law is an important tool for safety on our roads. I was one of the authors of the original legislation.

State police are out with an awareness campaign to make drivers more aware of the Move-over Law.

According to FBI statistics, traffic crashes claim the lives of more police personnel than any other cause of death in the line of duty, including shootings. The law requires drivers to move-over one lane if an emergency vehicle or maintenance vehicle with flashing lights is parked on the shoulder of any state highway.
